Inscape, a leading designer, manufacturer and distributor of innovative workplace solutions, recently opened a brand-new showroom in Montreal. “Establishing a showroom here is an example of Inscape’s commitment to developing our business in this important region of Canada,” says Craig Dunlop, Inscape’s executive vice-president of sales and marketing. “We are very pleased to be able to support our partners by increasing our visibility and presence here.”
The 2,200-square-foot showroom is located in a century-old building in Montreal’s historic district, home to many design firms. Wood floors, original steel beams and brick walls have been restored to their original character, providing a unique backdrop for the contemporary aesthetic of Inscape’s products.
Low-height panels allow natural light to flow in from large windows to permeate the space, while Inscape’s Interval post-and-beam system provides structure and delineates space within the showroom. Custom screens display sketches of the inspiration for the design of the company’s Scala and Planna lines.
The building’s rich, dark wood beams and brick contrast with the light natural maple wood, silver and white finishes of Inscape products; peripheral seating adds a burst of colour. Accessories include natural wood cut from Quebec’s plentiful forests.
